I had an extremely pleasant and interesting afternoon learning about the art of Bonsai at Masashi's bonsai nursery. I was treated to a tasty lunch, a documentary about Masashi's work, a tour of his nursery and an introduction to what bonsai creating is. Then I got to create my own piece, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Thank you!

This experience is a good way to get a very practical introduction to bonsai. Masashi took the time to learn about his guests while sharing his own background in Bonsai. The location provides a great chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Both Masashi and his wife Mai were extremely hospitable and casual so i felt very comfortable. the session starts with a meal and proceeds to a video about Masashi and his Bonsai background. later, guests get a tour of his personal Bonsai nursery. next,we can actually create our own Bonsai piece after a short presentation on its principles. creating the piece consists of placemet of the chosen plants, creating the outer and inner foundations, securing the plants and covering the exposed soil with moss. while Masashi explains each step well, i think reading a bit about Bonsai and its steps would help create a better image of how you want your peice to look. Having a vague idea of the finished look made me hesitate about how i should proceed. overall, i really enjoyed doing Bonsai and look forward to trying it again.

This is an excellent activity you may ever expect from airbnb. The master and his wife host us so well, which is not only providing us a insight and experience with bonsai art, but also providing us a wonderful afternoon with a chance of living in local life.

When we arrived at the train station, we were welcomed by a student of Masashi who took us by van to the bonsai center. At the bonsai center, Masashi and his wife had a wonderful lunch waiting for us. After lunch and friendly conversation, we were introduced to Masashi's bonsai garden, which has a beautiful selection of bonsai of all varieties. Then we got down to work. Masashi took us to a workshop where we created our own bonsai! We were invited to choose from a large selection of different plants to incorporate into our planting. Masashi gave us instruction along the way, but allowed us to essentially design and arrange our plants however we wanted. Once we were finished, he studied our work and offered insight on how to harmonize the look and movement of the plants. My personal feelings about the experience are that it was amazing. If you are someone who is interested at all in bonsai, I definitely recommend this experience. This isn't a bonsai lecture. It is very hands-on. You learn about bonsai and the plants you will come to know by working with them. Masashi and his wife were also incredibly warm and welcoming. After only a few minutes, we felt like we were hanging out with old friends.

We have had the most wonderful afternoon at Masa's place! It was nice to leave the city and get the train to the more rural Sashiogi, where the bonsai workshop/café is set in a beautiful location. Masa's wife Mai had prepared some lovely food for us and we watched a short documentary about his art before getting hands-on. There were both Japanese and English speaking people in our group and Masa and Mai translated everything. We created some living tree centrepieces, which Masa later gave us feedback on. Overall, this was an excellent experience and we would recommend this to anyone travelling to Tokyo as a great cultural immersion!
